Career in pics: Cork’s Noel O’Leary retires from inter-county football

The wing-back is calling time on his 14-year spell with the Rebels.

AFTER 14 YEARS playing senior football for Cork, Noel O’Leary is calling time on his inter-county career.

According to the Irish Examiner, the 31-year-old Cill na Martra wing-back has announced his retirement from the Cork panel meaning his final appearance was against old rivals Kerry in the Munster final last July.

O’Leary won an All-Ireland minor championship with the Rebels in 2000 before going on to claim three senior Munster titles and lift Sam Maguire in 2010.
